Anyone using Lew's HM85 MH Hammer? #13342609 11/15/19 12:49 AM

Been a few years since I've been here. Plan on re-familiarizing myself with the site and its people.

This rod (Lew's Speed Stick Lite HM85 7'3" MH Hammer) has me curious. A MHF rated for 1/4-5/8 oz. is a typical MF for me. However, the 10-25 lb. line rating is definitely MH territory. Is the lure rating true weights or weight of.....say a jig minus trailer, hook, etc.? In other words, capable of handling 7/8-1 oz.?

My experience with Lew's rods is zero. Would love to hear from users. What do you use the rod for? What weights do you feel should be used with this rod? I've read sensitivity on the HM85 line is quite good. Do you concur?

Most importantly...............................where can I find a great deal on this rod should I elect to buy one? smile I am not finding any deals.

I have a photographic memory...........it never got developed

I have used custom speed sticks and custom speed stick lites for a couple years now. I use that rod for throwing wacky heads, anywhere from 1/16oz to 3/16 oz. I use the magnum bass rod for casting, skipping, or flipping jigs and tx rigs.
